We built Tech in Motion™ back in 2011 with the simplest goal of giving back to the tech communities we serve. And an amazing technology networking series was born where thought leaders come together, share ideas, and inspire one another.
Today, we proudly have over 250,000 tech enthusiasts involved with Tech in Motion™ and host up to 80 tech networking events a year throughout North America. Programs are always thoughtfully curated and range from panels to mixers to demos with some of the greatest tech minds around. (NOTE: Due to safety concerns with Covid-19, Tech In Motion™ has successfully pivoted from in-person events to an online format). Notable past events include:
